etrailer Trailer Hubs and Drums - Pre Greased Hub with Integrated Drum - AKHD-550-35-K Review


Jeff: Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at this 10 inch pre greased trailer hub and drum assembly for 3,500 pound axles. Has a five on five inch bolt pattern. Now, this trailer hub and drum assembly will provide the surface area for your brake shoes or your brake magnet to grip when the brakes are activated. It is compatible with electric and hydraulic drum brakes. So, right here is where the magnet would grip too.

And if you use hydraulic drum brakes, this is where the shoes would grip to.This is a pre greased hub and drum assembly. It's very easy to install, no need to pack the bearings with grease. It comes already greased with lithium complex multipurpose grease. Can see they have a plug up here that keeps the grease in with the bearing installed. And the inside also has the plug that has the grease already in there.This does include everything shown here.

It includes the pre greased inner and outer bearings. The inner bearing is part number 68149. The outer bearing they use is L44649. The bearing races are also pre-installed that the bearings will sit in. In the back here, they have a grease seal in the rear that's installed.

It's part number 58846. You can also see that it does come with the grease cap for the front here. And then five of the half inch by 20 size lug nuts.Now, this is a sturdy iron construction. They do use a zinc enriched paint on the drum to add durability. And if you notice the wheel studs right here are zinc finished to help resist corrosion.

It is QAI and CSA certified. Few specs again. The application is for 3,500 pound trailer axles with the number 84 spindles.It is compatible with standard axles from most manufacturers, including Dexter, Lippert and ALCO. The actual drum dimensions, which we measure here on the inside. The diameter, it's going to be right at 10 inches and the width, which is where a brake shoe would go, is going to be right at two and a half inches wide. This is designed to work with 10 inch size brake assemblies. Bolt pattern on this is a five on five inch bolt pattern. The wheel stud size is a half inch diameter. So they do use the half inch by 20 size lug nuts. And the weight capacity on this is 1,750 pounds. So when this is used with one on the other side of the axle, it'll meet your 3,500 pound axle rating.But that should do it for the review on this 10 inch pre greased trailer, hub and drum assembly for 3,500 pound axles. Has the five on five inch bolt pattern.
